Upon the conclusion of the 2022–23 season, Paris Saint-Germain will have two players available to sign with other teams: Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos. Here, find out PSG’s conditions to extend both players’ deals.
Seeing Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos in the same team has to be one of the most shocking sights for football fans in recent years. They represent two of the greatest periods in the history of the rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid and have faced each other many times. Additionally, the two were constantly pitted against each other, leading to some rough foul play.
Despite disappointing first campaigns in Ligue 1, the two currently share the dressing room at Paris Saint-Germain. Both Messi and Ramos have started the season well now that they have settled into their new surroundings. However, with both their contracts set to expire at the end of the 2022-23 season, the players could leave Paris for free in the summer.
There had been talk of the Argentine staying in the French capital, but he said he would decide after the World Cup, which starts at the end of November. While the Spanish veteran struggled with injuries during his first season, he has since recovered to become a key member of the team’s defense.
How Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos could stay at PSG next season
Therefore, it seems that Paris Saint-Germain sports advisor Luis Campos would like nothing more than to sign both players to new contracts until next summer so that they do not leave the French capital as free agents.
“Messi and Sergio Ramos extension? IF Ramos continues to perform well, why not extend it? As for Messi? I am also satisfied. I asked Messi if he wanted to stay too,” Campos told Canal Supporters and RMC Sport at the weekend.
“I am very happy with Leo. Last season was difficult for him. After being an icon in Barcelona for 20 years, he had to make a major life change, in a different place and in a different league than the Spanish one. He needed Now we see a Leo who will
gradually get to the level we were used to.
“I am also very satisfied with the level of Sergio Ramos. I think he is not satisfied with the last season. I know Sergio very well, I met him at Real, he will have a very good season. He is making progress, he is still efficient.
